Chuck star Yvonne Strahovski is in final negotiations to join I, Frankenstein, the action monster movie starring Aaron Eckhart. Miranda Otto, best known for playing Eowyn in The Lord of the Rings movies, also is on board.
Stuart Beattie is directing the Lakeshore/Lionsgate movie, which follows Frankenstein’s monster (Eckhart) vacillating between humanity and monsterdom while being pursued by demons wanting to gain the secret of his reanimated corpse.
Strahovski will play the female lead, a scientist working on reanimating the dead and tricked into working for demons seeking to create an army of the undead.
Otto is playing the queen of the gargoyles who wants to help Frankenstein. (…)
Australian actress Otto starred in the pilot for Locke & Key, which adapted the Joe Hill comic book, and starred in ABC’s Cashmere Mafia. She is repped by Gersh and Management 360 as well as United Agent’s in Australia. (source)
